    Hi Disney Moms (and dads,) I currently have a reservation (resort room and tickets package) for this August but I am planning on moving my vacation to next August and extending my vacation from 10 days to 14 days. How do I go about doing this?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sandy!

    I'm so glad that you asked this question, as arranging all of the details of your visit to Walt Disney World is the key to a most magical trip. And two full weeks in The Most Magical Place on Earth? AMAZING!

    I chatted with a Cast Member and confirmed that rates have not yet been released for August 2021, so a typical modification to that later date with a confirmed price would have to wait a bit. However, under current circumstances, Walt Disney World is also not able to modify existing vacation plans, as parks and resorts begin to prepare for a glorious reopening.

    Another option, then, would be for you to cancel your August 2020 vacation, and rebook your extended trip for August 202, once that becomes available. To cancel, just go to your My Disney Experience account and head to "My Reservations". There, if you see a "Cancel Reservation" link, you can cancel online. If not, you'll see a phone number that is listed for you to cancel over the phone. You can even do this on the super-handy My Disney Experience mobile app, too!

    Be sure to check the cancellation policy that is included with your particular reservation, though, as that may help you decide which action to take and at what time.

    In addition, a Hotel Reservations - Frequently Asked Question on Walt Disney World's website provides a phone number, too, should you wish to discuss your options with a Cast Member on the Reservations Team. If so, call (407) 939-4357. 

    I'm sure your August trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth will be packed with pixie dust, no matter which date you choose. Have so much planning it!

    As you think of additional questions, Sandy, be sure to send them our way. We love to help!
